Students with a chemical engineering degree work in a wide array of areas, ranging from chemical and energy to pharmaceuticals, textiles, consumer goods, polymers, solid-state and biomedical devices. Some chemical engineers, who are also known as process engineers, specialize in a particular process, such as oxidation (a reaction of oxygen with chemicals to make other chemicals) or polymerization (the making of plastics and resins). Others specialize in a particular field such as nanomaterials (extremely small substances) or biological engineering, while still others specialize in developing specific products.

What is Chemical Engineering?
As a student interested in engineering, chemistry, and biological methods, you might consider a chemical engineering degree. Students who pursue this type of degree seek knowledge in nanotechnology and surface science; energy and the environment; biotechnology; systems and process design; and catalysis and reaction engineering.

Chemical engineers are able to design sustainable, safe, and economical equipment for large-scale chemical or biological manufacturing plants. They have contributed to the development of earth-friendly plastics, rapid blood-typing, rechargeable batteries, cleaner sources of energy, vaccines to ward off epidemics, seawater desalination, and much more.

What is a Chemical Engineering Degree?
A chemical engineering degree covers broad areas of engineering, using a combination of chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals, foods, drugs, fuels, and other products. Students learn the development, design, and control of processes and products that involve molecular change, as well as the operation of those processes.

This degree prepares students to use, produce, transform, and transport chemicals, materials, and energy efficiently for large-scale manufacturing, as well as to plan and test production methods, byproducts treatment, and direct facility operations. If you are interested in chemical and biological processes and changes, this may be the degree for you.

With a chemical engineering degree, students will be able to:

-Conduct research to develop new and improved manufacturing processes
-Establish safety procedures for individuals working with dangerous chemicals
-Develop processes for separating components of liquids and gases, or for generating electrical currents, by using
controlled chemical processes
-Design and plan equipment layouts
-Conduct tests and monitor the performance of processes throughout production
-Troubleshoot problems occurring in manufacturing processes
-Evaluate equipment and processes to ensure compliance with safety and environmental regulations
-Estimate production costs for management teams

Careers in Chemical Engineering
Students with a chemical engineering degree work in a wide array of areas, ranging from chemical and energy to pharmaceuticals, textiles, consumer goods, polymers, solid-state and biomedical devices.

Some chemical engineers, who are also known as process engineers, specialize in a particular process, such as oxidation (a reaction of oxygen with chemicals to make other chemicals) or polymerization (the making of plastics and resins). Others specialize in a particular field such as nanomaterials (extremely small substances) or biological engineering, while still others specialize in developing specific products.

Chemical engineers also work in the production of energy, electronics, food, clothing, and paper. They must understand how the manufacturing process affects the environment and the safety of workers and consumers. Chemical engineers also conduct research in the life sciences, biotechnology, and business services, often traveling to plants or worksites both domestically and abroad.

The largest employers of chemical engineers are engineering services; research and development in the physical, engineering, and life sciences; petroleum and coal products manufacturers; pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturers; and wholesale trades. Major companies that hire chemical engineers include the Kimberly-Clark corporation, Dow Chemical Company, 3M, Merck, Intel Corporation, Cliffs Natural Resources, among others.

Other Information
There are a number of universities offering an online chemical engineering degree track. This can be helpful for those interested in programs that may not be in their area. Online programs offer flexible learning options that may have a combination of online and physical classes, or have a virtual-only setting, where students may be more comfortable.

A solid career path, chemical engineering can help you make a contribution both to society and the STEM disciplines as a whole.
